Letter from Publisher
Here we are, April 2021, Tampa Bay, and good things are happening on the West Coast of Florida. This month’s issue of Natural Awakenings healthy living magazine is here again with another eye-opening array of news and views from the forefront of the natural health movement.
While going about daily life routines these days may require a bit of tweaking of longstanding habits, we are strong and evolving in our community and as a planetary population. The arrival of Earth Day in April brings environmental protection to special public focus. It is so empowering to learn of the remarkable progress being made by local, national, and international environmental protection networks, inspiring widespread public attention to the movement. (See special focus on EarthDay.org actions, page 12).
Writer Sandra Yeyati looks at the human costs of a warming planet vividly in her article entitled “Climate Change and Our Health”. The more we understand about this all-encompassing issue, the better to articulate it and help realize change.
